feeter performer today on the all-american concert series brought to you by keurig right there on the stage 48th and sixth avenue. if you are in new york city, not only will you hear him, you will actually have breakfast. ainsley: never too early in the morning for barbecue. >> breakfast? steve: this is a bonus i didn't know. ainsley: welcome. happy friday. ed: back from the white house? ainsley: yesterday i got to interview the president and melania, the first lady. we will have that interview coming up. ed: great music. ainsley: we have the concert today. this is a wonderful friday here in new york city. steve: of course yesterday it was about midday when the draft proposal, the talking points with the republicans like to do with healthcare was unveiled. and also, at the same time, when you were at the white house, you asked the president and the first lady a myriad of questions. and asked about nancy pelosi, too. ainsley: that's right. some democrats are calling for her to step down. here is a little bit of our interview with the president.

3:03 am
we will be showing it to you all all morning long. here is some of it. >> today there are four senators saying they are not supporting the healthcare bill. four republican senators. what is your message to them. you have the white house, of the house, republicans have the house and the senate. buffalo you have these senators not on board. >> they are also four good guys and four friends of mine. i think they will probably get there. we will have to see. you know, healthcare is a very difficult situation. if you looked, the clintons tried to get it and after years and years they couldn't do it. obamacare was murder for them to get. and now it's failed. it's virtually out of business. obamacare is a disaster. and we're trying to do something on a very short period of time. interesting, ainsley, i have been here only five months, people saying where is the healthcare? i have done in five months what other people haven't done in years. people have worked on healthcare for many years. it's a very complicated situation from the standpoint you do something that's good

3:04 am
for one group but bad for another. it's a very, very narrow path. but i think we're going to get there. we have four very good people that he not that they are opposed. they would like to get certain changes. and we will see if we can take care of that. ainsley: we're getting word now that some democrats even want nancy pelosi to step down. a lot of republicans think democrats are in denial, they didn't win the special elections. they don't have the house. they don't have the senate. they don't have the white house. what do democrats need to do? are they in denial and what do they need to do to get on board. >> first of all, i hope she doesn't step down. it would be a very, very sad day for republicans if she steps down. i would be very, very disappointed if she did. i would like to keep her right where she is because our record is extraordinary against her. but we will see what happens. there has been a lot of talk about her stepping down. we will have to see what happens. the victory in atlanta was very big. they spent $30 million.
3:05 am
we had a candidate who did a very, very good job. i think i helped a lot. and we had a great candidate. but, we are 5-0 as you know in these special elections and i think the democrats thought it would be a lot different than that 5-0 is a big -- that's a big margin. and this last one was very interesting though. because they put everything into it. they had every consultant. they had agencies, advertising agency he is. ainsley: holiday? >> think of it. holiday came out. and in the end, we won quite easily. much by a bigger margin than anybody would have thought. so, they are going to have to do something. i will say this. they are right now obstructionists. all they want to do is try and obstruct. i think they would do much better as a party if they got along with us. they called and said let's work on healthcare and tax
3:06 am
reform. let's work on structure infrast i think american people are tired of obstructionists. i believe that when i say that boy would the people love to see two parties getting together and coming up with the perfect healthcare plan because obamacare has failed now. it's dead. the insurance companies are all flocking and leaving. and it's a real problem. ainsley: wouldn't that be refreshing if you could all come together? >> that's the way it should be. there are moments in our country's history that's what happened. greater things whether it was social security or medicare? it was two parties and got together and came one great solutions to problems. i don't think that's going to happen, but that is what should happen. ainsley: everyone is saying give him a chance. you know, people are -- it's back firing on the democrats. because they are saying just give him chance. all the nasty rhetoric. all the collusion and
3:07 am
corruption that hasn't been proven, all the leaks. just give him a chance so everyone can work together. ed: healthcare bill comes out. people trashing it. die if it becomes law. what they're not doing is saying this is how we would fix obamacare because obamacare is failing as the president says. that's a point that's note to be disputed. yes, there are good points of obamacare. more people are covered. also bankrupting people. also bankrupting the government. steve: all these democrats are supporting something that doesn't work. so now the president of the united states was elected president last november because of his negotiating skills. so let's see what happens. well, there are those four republicans who say we don't like this thing. i saw peter doocy yesterday up on capitol hill, and he reported that there are between 8 and 10 senate democrats who are willing to sit down and help write and adjust this particular bill. ainsley: that's wonderful. i hope it happens. ed: if their voices are actually heard. elizabeth warren and other
3:08 am
democrats are basically no negotiation here. this is a disaster. we are going to block it. we are going to obstruct it i thought it was very nice of the president that he endorsed nancy pelosi. steve: keep her around forever. ainsley: keep her around. we don't want to force her out. she is good for republicans. tweeted about crying chuck. he shouldn't leave either. steve: keep in mind yesterday she took the stage and defended herself. we are about to play a little bit of her defending why she should keep the job. keep in mind, at exactly the same time as she was doing it, republican democrat by the name of kathleen rice hosted a strategy meet in her office with a dozen democrats trying to figure out how to squeeze her out. ainsley: that takes some guts. steve: no kidding. i think she needs a food tester. that was going on while nancy pelosi was saying this. >> you want me to sing my praises? is that what you are saying? why should i? well, i'm a master legislator. i am a strategic politically
3:09 am
astute leader. i am -- my leadership is recognized by many around the country, and that is why i am able to attract the support that i do. steve: nancy pelosi is great at raising money for her members. she is great at raising money. she is not good at winning. ed: that's why a rank and file democrats are scared of her. they need money to get reelected. say i am going to turn off the spigot. who is going to come up and raise all this money. that's kept her in power. while she was projecting that confidence, her aides were privately not so confident. suggested tweets to send out. steve: to defend her? ed: so much at stake. healthcare of millions on the line. most effective legislator in history. #stand with nancy. ainsley: they did not want you to know that they were sending this out. "new york times" reporter got her hands on one of these emails that staffers sending
3:10 am
out to allies in the house. you can just copy and paste this tweet. just put ton your social media account. #stand with nancy. ed: getting a little despretty. steve: preview of what you will see later on today. meanwhile nancy pelosi not the only trump critic unraveling on television. over on msnbc. there is a political analyst by the name of elise jordan. she was asked by the host these tapes apparently didn't exist between the president of the united states and mr. comey. and then she has the sound bite of the day. listen to this. >> it's a sad day when you cannot depend on the president's word and my advice would be just to republicans who do cozy up to him it's like hugging a suicide bomber he blows you up in the process with him. ainsley: that's a little harsh. i was proud of the host craig said that's a little strong. she doubled down. she said hugging a suicide bomber, what?
3:11 am
ed: steve scalise and others shot on baseball field. others saying we are going to tone down the rhetoric. we are going to reach across the aisle. everyone needs to tone down look at johnny depp and what hollywood is saying. >> trump i think he needs help. [laughter] when was the last time an actor assassinated a president? [cheers] >> i'm going to clarify, i'm not an actor. [laughter] >> i lie for a living. however, it's been a while. and maybe it's time. steve: extraordinary. so there is he talking about abraham, john wilkes booth and donald trump. the secret service says we are not going to talk about what we're doing but we're doing something. ed: elise jordan and the suicide bombings we have seen and obamaings we have seen europe the last week.
3:12 am
ainsley: a week ago steve scalise. he is a mess. is he a wrengeght he is saying that he thinks the president needs help? steve: both those comments go into the comments stupid things people say. ainsley: let us know what you think. hand it over to jillian who has more headlines for us. hey, jillian. jillian: probably a lot in that category. i don't know i want to touch this friday morning. good morning to you guys and to you at home as well. north korea said it's the biggest victim in otto warmbier's death. they didn't torture otto and the united states is waging a smear campaign against them. the 22-year-old died less than one week after being released by the rogue nation. hundreds showed up as he was laid to rest yesterday. otto's younger brother austin remembered him as the most popular kid in the class and someone who was always there for his friend. meantime north korea testing another rocketed that the u.s. believes could be part of its program to develop an intercontinental ballistic

missile. the "new york times" gets a special visitor. the daily mail got these pictures of former fbi director james comey stopping by their office in manhattan. he reportedly spent three hours inside. the visit comes after he admitted to leaking private conversations he had with the president of the "times." the president revealing he doesn't have any tapes of those conversations tweeting, quote: with all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking, and illegal leaking of information, i have no idea whether there are tapes or recordings of my conversations with james comey, but did i not make and do not have any such recordings. so why did he tweet about the taping in the president will answer that question in 20 minutes. so stay tuned for that one, guys. ed: wonder what james comey was doing at the "new york times." apes ages not even trying to hide. get the president's response at 6:30. meantime. steve: president obama just broke his silence on the senate healthcare bill.
3:14 am

3:15 am
i have a brand new putter you don't even know about! it's awesome. safe driving bonus checks, only from allstate. sometimes i leave the seat up on purpose. switching to allstate is worth it. whimper yap yap yap yip is your dog trying to tell you something? allergic itch in dogs is a medical condition that's more common and treatable than you think. that's why there's prescription apoquel: the revolutionary medicine that's giving millions of dogs the relief they deserve. apoquel goes to the source of the itch to provide relief in as little as 4 hours. woof and apoquel is safe without many of the side effects associated with the use of steroids. apoquel is for the control of itch associated with allergic dermatitis and the control of atopic dermatitis in dogs. do not use apoquel in dogs less than 12 months old or those with serious infections. apoquel may increase the chance of developing serious infections and may cause existing parasitic skin infestations or pre-existing cancers to worsen. do not use in breeding, pregnant, or lactating dogs.
3:16 am
most common side effects are vomiting and diarrhea. don't wait. ask your veterinarian about apoquel today. apoquel. it's itch relief worth barking about. bark the only bed smart enough to change sleep as we know it. it senses your every move and automatically adjusts on both sides to keep you comfortable. and snoring ? ... does your bed do that? right now save on sleep number 360 smart beds. plus, it's the lowest prices of the season with savings of $500 on our most popular p5 bed. before fibromyalgia, i was a doer. i was active. then the chronic, widespread pain drained my energy. my doctor said moving more helps ease fibromyalgia pain. she also prescribed lyrica. fibromyalgia is thought to be the result of overactive nerves.
3:17 am
lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. woman: for some, lyrica can significantly relieve fibromyalgia pain and improve function, so i feel better. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. with less pain, i can be more active. ask your doctor about lyrica. ed: former president obama bleasing the senate bill to repeal and replace obamacare. writing in part the senate bill unveiled today is not a
3:18 am
healthcare bill. it's a massive transfer of wealth from middle class and poor families to the richest people in america. what happened to past presidents staying out of partisan politics when they leave office? here to discuss morgan ortega. good morning. >> good morning, ed. ed: is he is a good judge when he promised the american people you get to keep your doctor, you get to keep your plan. >> that's a really good point, ed. if you look at it from a political perspective in both the 2010 and 2016 elections, his party was disseminated in these elections on obamacare specifically. almost more than anything else. that's what the republicans ran on. so, i agree with you the criticism that we saw yesterday of a bill that is still being formed by the house and the senate was a bit fresh. ed: what about the point that republicans in fairness haven't wanted to admit over the last few years that there have been good parts of obamacare. millions more people being covered, for example? but democrats have not wanted
3:19 am
to admit, either, that it's coast a whole lot more money and have you all these insurance companies pulling out. why isn't the former president, in order to protect his legacy, weighing i n a more positive way saying here is how we fix it? >> well, to your question, is he not weighing n a more positive way because he didn't have a lot of big signature accomplishments over his eight years as president. two of his biggest accomplishments are things that president trump is working to undo right away. one is the healthcare bill and of course the paris climate accord. and, also, we can't forget about the iran bill. these things that president obama we consider to be major legislative achievements of his eight years, which i would argue there aren't many are something within his first six months that president trump is looking to undo. that's got to sting. ed: you heard in ainsley's interview with the president. exclusive interview. more in a moment. he said look, i would throf reach across the aisle and find a way to have a bipartisan.
3:20 am
steve reporting almost a dozen democrats in the senate not in the house but the senate saying let's find ways to fix this. reality check of both sides coming here on a compromise? >> well, unfortunately, i think we are just seeing such a divisive time in washington that prospect is pretty low. hopefully president trump can work to bring people together. ed: we have 30 seconds. what two r. two keep points they need to do to get it done? >> republicans have to be unified on this. we saw at least four republican senators defect. democrats are unified on this. republicans are not. ed: still ahead more of ainsley's exclusive interview with president trump and the first lady. including something he has not said before about jim comey. more americans than ever afraid crowds? yes thanks in part to the most recent guest. next guest says you shouldn't be either.

3:28 am
which are dashboard cameras, body came are as and things like that. showing the public what the officers sees a it happen. steve: do you like the idea of body cameras and dashboard cameras? >> i do. anything to do with change, it's difficult at first. you know, especially in policing. we have ways we like to do things. but, it is, i think, more beneficial to us as law enforcement. it shows the full story, not just parts of the story social media likes to spread around. ainsley: three hours of rides. we have done the ride alongs as reporters. there is lag time, down time. how do you keep the audience entertained in down time. >> the show has six different geographically andeth ethnically diverse cities on at one time. small cities, large cities, troopers, deputies, municipalities, with the six cities something might be slow on one spot it can bounce to another city and dialogue that goes on about it as well. steve: today you are sitting in one of th the big cities in

so i liked when my doctor told me that i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me with once-weekly trulicity. trulicity is not insulin. it helps activate my body to do what it's suppose to do, release its own insulin. i take it once a week, and it works 24/7. it comes in an easy-to-use pen and i may even lose a little weight. trulicity is a once-weekly injectable prescription medicine to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. trulicity is not insulin. it should not be the first medicine to treat diabetes, or for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. do not take trulicity if you or a family member has had medullary thyroid cancer, if you've had multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to trulicity. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have a lump or swelling in your neck, severe pain in your stomach, or symptoms such as itching, rash, or trouble breathing.
3:33 am
serious side effects may include pancreatitis, which can be fatal. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin, increases your risk for low blood sugar. common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, decreased appetite and indigestion. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may make existing kidney problems worse. once-weekly trulicity may help me reach my blood sugar goals. with trulicity, i click to activate what's within me. if you want help improving your a1c and blood sugar, activate your within. ask your doctor about once-weekly trulicity.

it's new york city themed and carousel and great stuff outside. ainsley: great news today. you said you didn't tape james comey. do you want to explain that? why did you him to believe you did that. >> i didn't tape him. you never know what's happening when you see that the obama administration and perhaps longer than that was doing all of this unmasking and surveillance. you read all about it and i've been reading about it the last couple of months the seriousness and horrible situation with surveillance all over the place. and you have been hearing the word unmasking, a word you probably never heard before. so you never know what's out there, but i didn't tape and i don't have any tape and i didn't tape. but, when he found out that i, you know, that there may be tapes out there, whether it's governmental tapes or anything else, and who knows, i think his story may have changed. i mean, you will have to take a look at that because then he has to tell what actually took place at the events. and my story didn't change.

my story was always a straight story. my story was always the truth. but you'll have to determine for yourself whether or not his story changed. but, i did not tape. ainsley: smart way to make sure he stayed honest in those hearings. >> well, it wasn't very stupid. i can tell you that he did admit that what i said was right. and if you look further back, before he heard about that, i think maybe he wasn't admitting that so, you'll have to do a little investigative reporting to determine that. but, i don't think it will be that hard. ainsley: robert mueller do you think he should recuse himself? he is friends with james comey. he has hired attorneys that were party of hillary clinton's foundation gave money to president obama and hillary clinton's campaign. should he recuse himself? >> he is very, very good friends with comey, which is very bothersome. but he is also -- we are going to have to see. we have to see in terms --
Check
3:39 am
look, there has been no obstruction. there has been no collusion. there has been leaking by comey. no leaking and no obstruction. virtually everybody agrees to that we have to see. i can say that the people that have been hired are all hillary clinton supporters. some of them worked for hillary clinton. i mean, the whole thing is ridiculous if you want to know the truth from that standpoint. but, robert mueller is an honorable man, and hopefully he will come up within a honorable solution. ed: the left is going bonkers with some of those comments in the tweet yesterday and some of the comments to you saying donald trump was trying to intimidate james comey by suggesting there may be tapes. look, this is all going to be sorted out by robert mueller, special counsel. what's wrong with saying hey, you better tell et truth is that intimidation james comb i didn't think you should tell the truth about what happened. steve: remember when the russians went into the oval office and then there was some suggestion about what was said and russian media says hey, you want a transcript?
3:40 am
we know exactly what was said in there i don't think they were rolling a tape that anybody saw. who knows what that was about. ainsley: it was saying just tell the truth. because robert mueller -- or james comey had never said anything about the president not being under investigation until the president says there might be tapes. and then all of the sudden the story changes answered said you know what? i told him three times that he was not under investigation. steve: that's all the president wanted james comb i can't understand the others to say. you are telling everybody else i'm not under investigation. i can get stuff done with my administration. just tell someone, would you. now we know because james comey testified to that great interview. jillian: happy friday from across the studio. how are you doing? steve: good. jillian: protest of what he considers anti-lbgt laws. california's attorney general banning treastles to four new states. that state will no longer use

incompetent v.a. executive, all of these executives that let our veterans down. you're fired. ed: guess what? today, the president will start to make good on that very promise. steve: army vet and fox news contributor pete hegseth was going to be there today. is he already report for duty. good morning to you,. pete: pete good morning. steve: explain for the folks. we all know you from being on "fox & friends" every once in the while on the weekends and whatnot, how you helped craft this v.a. reform bill. pete: three years ago the v.a. scandal that emanated out of phoenix the world realized systemic problems at the veterans o of affairs. you never change the culture until you hold people accountable. the v.a. committee myself and two other individuals said we need to sit down and hold the v.a. accountable. folks i know involved in that process, that became the first v.a. accountability act passed through the house.
3:47 am
president obama was never going to sign it because he supports the government unions than the ability to hold people accountable. we stuck at it. year after year our organization concerned veterans for america and other allies on the hill. we kept pushing it. got it passed on the senate. president obama said he would veto it signature campaign promise of his, follow through, hold people accountable and drain the swamp at v.a. this bill going to be signed in the white house today by president trump is a signature accomplishment for those of house think the v.a. finally needs to be held accountable and veterans deserve the best care our country can give. ed: a major accomplishment. walk our viewers through exactly how it will happen. lotteries requirements to fire employee. raises standards for their performance. talk about the firing issue the president sort of made a little joke about it on reality tv. this is real serious business. >> this is real stuff.
3:48 am
people who commit egregious offenses at the v.a. keep their job after exhaustive review processes and pensions or bonuses. and makes us all extremely upset that this is how our government operates. it all happens in the shadows. the swamp operates with special interest and bureaucratic language. this changes the bureaucratic language away from a preponderance of the evidence to substantial evidence and gives deference to the person firing, person being fired needs to prove why they should keep their job. the process is shortened in the review time and whistle blowers are substantially protected through a new office being codified there as well. whistleblowers are protected. people who need to be fired can be fired more quickly. the hope is and senior executives, the higher level officials are held to higher standard which the way it should be. ains pains we have all done stories as journalists on those individuals. people in phoenix, people on the list trying to get in to see their doctors. dying by the time they got their appointments which is six months down the road. that has got to stop.

3:50 am
horrible job and people are dying in hospitals because they are not helping them, how do you get around unions? pete: let's be clear unions and employees have plenty of protections. they have had layer upon layer decades upon decades in that arena where it's almost impossible to fire people. these people have opposed by the v.a. union. they don't like it. they hate it that's the best sign it's a good one. it really is shortens review times. the review time becomes internal to the v.a. as oppose today controlled by unions which has to happen as well. steve: we will be watching and feature the signing right here on the channel. pete, thank you very much. tune in starting 6:00 a.m. on sunday. pete has an interview with president trump talking about just this very issue. pete: important stuff. ainsley: proud to have him as a fox news contributor. steve: he has been working for years on it mission accomplished. interview you won't see any place else. hero who fought off those terrorists in london with

3:55 am
so their objections kind of variy. one doesn't like the procedure. couple others don't like the reforms big enough. some the reforms are great. i have not yet decided to vote for the bill. i can tell you it puts it on a path good for the patients. good for the state taxpayer and federal stacks tear. that's a lot of things. steve: have you at love good ideas you being a doctor yourself. have some of those been incorporated. >> they have been. we need to lower premiums for the average family. make sure the coverage they have would cover them if somebody has life threatening illness. stepping taken to immediately lower premiums for those american families who are paying 20, 30, and $30,000 a year. that's a good thing. still cover them should their loved one get sick. again that is a good thing. steve: individual eliminates the individual and employee mandates. gets rid of a lot of taxes. ultimately it's got top cheaper and better. is it? >> it is cheaper and it
3:56 am
depends on how you define better. the obama administration, the obamacare had bells and whistles on all of their policies. so if you were. steve: essential health benefits which states now will decide. >> yes and no. essential health benefits are only about a small portion of the cost. that said, there is a lot of things mandated that folks just couldn't afford. so, when you are paying 20, 30, $40,000 for a premium. it doesn't matter what's in the policy. you can't afford the policy e. steve: you know, senator, time is short. if the president is tweeting, there is a possibility he is watching you right now. he wants to know whether or not this is going to pass the senate. >> we have to wait and see how -- i don't have a whip count so there is different senators who have different concerns. that said, do i think this is a good beginning. the concerns i have and others have are addressed, i think it will pass and that will be good for the united states of america. steve: if it goes past the fourth of july it goes past the fourth of july? >> that's okay with me. steve: senator, thanks for

4:03 am
ed: healthcare bill. ainsley: i asked him about that. four senators saying we don't love this healthcare bill that's come through the senate. and there are republicans and they are friends of the president. so we asked the president about it yesterday. steve: we were talking about nancy pelosi should she go or should she stay? did you ask him about that. ainsley: i asked him about that, too. ed: he seems to really like her. >> today they are supporting this healthcare bill. four republican senators. what is your message to them? because your supporters that voted for you are a little frustrate straighted because you have the house. the republicans have the house and the senate. you have these senators not on board. >> also four good guys and friends of mine. i think they will probably get there we have to see. you know, healthcare is a very difficult situation. if you looked, the clintons tried to get it and after years and years they couldn't do it. obamacare was murder for them to get. and now it's failed. it's virtually out of business. obamacare a disaster. and we're trying to do something in a very short period of time.
4:04 am
it's interesting, ainsley, i've been here only five months. people saying where is the healthcare? where is the heck? i have done in five months what other people haven't done in years. it's been -- people have worked on healthcare for many years. it's a very complicated situation from the standpoint you do something that's good for one group but bad for another. it's a very, very narrow path. but i think we're going to get there we have four very good people that -- it's not that they are opposed. they would like to get certain changes. and we will see if qui take care of that. ainsley: we are getting word now that some democrats even want nancy pelosi to step down. a left republicans think democrats are in denial. they didn't win the special elections. they don't have the house. they don't have the senate. they don't have the white house. what do democrats need to do? are they in denial and what do they need to do to get on board. >> first of all, i hope she doesn't step down. i think it would be a very, very sad day for republicans if she steps down. i would be very, very disappointed if she did.
4:05 am
i would like to keep her right where she is because our record is extraordinary against her. but we'll see what happens. there has been a let of talk about her stepping down. we have to see what happens. the victory in atlanta was very big. they spent $30 million. we had a candidate who did a very, very good job. i think i helped a lot. and we had a great candidate. but, we are 5-0 as you know. in these special elections. and i think the democrats thought it would be a lot different than that 5-0 is a big -- that's a big margin. and this last one was very interesting though because they put everything into it. they had every consultant. they had agencies, advertising agencies. ainsley: hollywood? >> hollywood came out. in the end we won. quite easily. by a bigger margin than anybody would have thought. so, they are going to have to do something. i will say this.
4:06 am
they are right now obstructionists. ought they want to do is try to obstruct. i think they would do much better as a peter if they goat along with us. if they called us and said let's work on healthcare together. let's work on tax cuts together and tax reform. let's work on infrastructure together. we can do it together. i honestly think they would do better at the polls. i think the american public is tired of obstructionists. and i honestly believe that and when i say that boy, would the people love to see two parties getting together and coming up with the perfect healthcare plan because obamacare has failed now. it's dead. the insurance companies are all flocking and leaving. and it's a real problem. ainsley: wouldn't that be refreshing if you could all come together? >> that's the way it should be. there have been moments in our country's history where that's what happened and those were the greatest things whether it was social security or medicare. it was two parties got together and came up with
4:07 am
great solutions to problems. and i don't think that's going to happen but that is what should happen. steve: you know, is he absolutely right. great interview ainsley. >> thank you. >> you covered a lot of territory. is he right. when people go to the polls to send people to washington. it's not to send them to go and obstruct. it's to go and get something done. and he is on the verk of tryinverge oftrying to fix obamh is falling apart. ed: guess who is joining the obstruction parade one barack obama who on the sidelines now put out this quote. the senate bill unveiled today is not a healthcare bill. simply put, if there is a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family, this bill will do you harm. and small tweaks over the next couple of weeks under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation. what struck me was the line in the middle. this bill will do you harm. mr. presiden president what is l doing to people in the state

4:09 am
listen. >> you want me to sing my praises? is that what you are saying? why should i? well, i'm a master legislator. i am a strategic, politically astute leader. i am -- my leadership is recognized by many around the country and that is why i am able to attract the support that i do. ed: democrats don't seem to be buying it though her own staff was putting out suggested tweets. tweet tweet #stand with nancy. they are worried. steve: at the same time she was giving press availability there in the house, afarnghtly in the office of -- rather, new york democrat representative kathleen rice, she was hosting a strategy meeting on how to. ed: oust nancy pelosi. viewers are weighing in on facebook. the longer she remains where she is. the more likely republicanlights keep on winning. ainsley: john on facebook says democrats should follow the

george castanza rule, do the opposite of what they think is the right thing. steve: grant suspect and on facebook and he writes they can fabricate everything but election victory. ainsley: realizing we have lost the last four special elections he is. we loss the white house, the senate and the house. they say we need new leaders. the leadership in there now is not working. steve: a couple years ago republicans in washington had these bumper stickers that said fire pelosi. they have recently changed it to say hire pelosi. they would like to keep her and her losing streak alive. ed: very interesting. because have you got this division on the democratic side and in interview president saying the big problem on healthcare now is his fellow republicans bringing them along. both sides are dealing with it. ainsley: is he honing she sticks around. steve: it's about 7:11 here in new york city. we have got some news. jillian? jillian: that's right. we do begin with breaking news right now. moments ago we found out a

special congressional elections this week one democratic staff reportedly said quote we have 80-year-old leaders and 0-year-old ranking members. this isn't a party it's a giant assisted living center. even worse the reporter then asked about the upcoming g-7 summit and several people yelled bingo. [laughter] ed: oh, yeah. age joke. steve: when in doubt. coming up, an exclusive. so last night if you are watching the channel about 7:30, the president of the united states and the first lady went to the stage on the south lawn of the white house for the congressional barbecue, welcomed everybody. but what you didn't know was about 10 minutes before that the two of them were talking to you. ainsley: yesterday was just a big day. there was so much to talk to the president about. he hadn't given interviews all day. i was very grateful to have that exclusive interview: first time melania has talked on camera since she has moved to the white house with her son barron. we had the comey tape issue yesterday.
4:35 am
you had four senators who said they weren't on board with the republican healthcare bill. steve: nancy pelosi. ainsley: nancy pelosi. democrats are asking her to step down. big news day yesterday. steve: james comey. ainsley: right. right. this one is about james comey. this is a portion of the interview. and also asking melania what it's like to live in the white house now. listen. ainsley: congratulations. you have moved into the house. how is it? >> we are enjoying it very much. ainsley: how about barron with school? >> he loves it we are all settled. he loves it here. ainsley: are you missing new york. >> not really. i'm so busy and we are doing so many great stuff. so it's really special place. i love it here. ainsley: that's wonderful. >> tonight is a big congressional picnic with all of us getting together. it's new york city themed. and we have carousel and great stuff outside. ainsley: big news today. you said you didn't tape james comey. do you want to explain that? why did you want him to
4:36 am
believe that you possibly did that? >> well, i didn't tape him. you never know what's happening when the obama administration and perhaps longer than that was doing all of this unmasking and surveillance and you read all about it. i have been reading about the seriousness and horrible situation with surveillance all over the place. and you have been hearing the word unmasking a word you probably never heard before. so you never know what's out there. but i didn't tape and i don't have any tape. and i didn't tape. but when he found out that i, you know that mr. there may be tapes out there. whether it's governmental tapes or anything else and who knows. i think his story may have changed. you will have to take a look at that because then he has to tell what actually took place at the events. and my story didn't change. my story was always a straight story. my story was always the truth. you will have to determine for yourself whether or not his story changed. but i did not tape.
4:37 am
ainsley: smart way to make sure he stayed honest in those hearings. >> well, it wasn't very stupid. i can tell you that. he did admit that what i said was right. and if you look further back before he heard about that, i think maybe he wasn't admitting that so you have to do a little investigative reporting to determine that. but, i don't think it will be that hard. ainsley: robert mueller, do you think he should excuse himself? he is good friends with james comey. hired some attorneys party of hillary clinton's foundation and gave money to hillary clinton's campaign. should he recuse himself. >> is he very, very good friends with comey, which is very bothersome. but he is also-we're going to have to see. i mean, we will have to see in terms -- look, there has been no obstruction. there has been no collusion. there has been leaking by comey. no collusion, no obstruction and virtually everybody agrees to that.
4:38 am
so we will have to see. i can say that the people that have been hired are all hillary clinton supporters. some of them worked for hillary clinton. i mean, the whole thing is ridiculous if you want to know the truth from that standpoint. but, robert mueller is an honorable man. and hopefully he will come up with an honorable solution. ed: it was interesting because when you were talking about the president raising the spector of tapes and whether or not it kept james comey honest. cnn was falsely claiming james comey was going to testify that he never told the president he was not under investigation. steve: they had to go back and correct that. ed: they had to correct that because did he tell the president he wasn't under investigation. ainsley: the president was saying. the president even said collusion, corruption, never been proven. there is a leaker. the leaker is james comey. steve: as we heard from james comey during his testimony up on capitol hill, did he tell the president three times you are not under investigation.
4:39 am
so the president, who is trying to get something done is going okay, have you told me three times. can you tell anybody? he says nope, i can't. steve: can anybody please tell folks i'm not under investigation? that's all he wanted. now we know but we have also have the special counsel. ainsley: he knows james comey is not telling the truth to the american people. he had to do what he to do. he said you might have been taped. that's why you need to be honest. that's why james comey said you know what? the president is not under investigation and did i tell him three times. ed: big news story. jillian is all over it. jillian: here is what you need to know before you head out the door. canadian man accused of stabbing a police officer tried to buy a gun in the united states but failed. the fbi saying he illegally entered the u.s. in new york last week before traveling to flint michigan. authorities say he shouted allahu akbar before ambushing an officer from behind, repeatedly stabbing him in the neck with a 12-inch hunting knife.

senate republicans are paying for tax cuts for the wealthy with american lives. >> senate republican healthcare bill is a wolf and n. sheep's clothing. only this wolf has even sharper teeth than the house bill. >> senate republicans are right to be ashamed of this mean and heartless legislation. >> so sad, mr. president. heartless. mean, and heartless. >> in some ways it's more evil. in some ways it's even dumber than the house proposal. ainsley: lawrence jones is a host for the blaze and he joins us on the curvey couch this morning to talk about this. ainsley: lawrence, how about that rhetoric? cuts -- what did she say blood money? people are going to die, sad, heartless. obamacare is not working. >> all i can tell you is i told you so. this is not going to end. it was all about photo ops
4:48 am
that the democrats would be back to their same rhetoric. we know what they are saying is not true. what happened to all the praying and the unity and saying we are going to come together. ainsley: you mean after the shooting on the baseball field? >> yeah, it was all false. they wanted a photo op. they wanted the american people to think they would be unified but they are not. ed: usually former presidents are on the sideline. let the new guy get a shot. in at least few months maybe. now is he saying this is not going to work. this is going to go backwards. if the republican bill is adopted. what about obamacare itself. insurance companies are pulling out left and right. >> first let's address president obama. is he still the leader of the democratic party. only notable face. he is the only one that has the energy of the democratic party. but he can't run again. second thing, when it comes to obamacare, no doubt it's failing. insurance companies are leaving the market. businesses are going bankrupt over obamacare. we know it's failing. what did this new bill do?
4:49 am
well the 30 hour rule that's gone now. the mandate rule that's gone now. and americans can decide if they want healthcare or if they don't wanted healthcare but a lot of people lost jobs because they were forced to go part time and they didn't have the money. steve: under the republican plan they would get rid of the individual and employer mandate. all right. speaking of that rhetoric. remember, it was about two weeks ago kathy griffin showed that picture. >> beheading the president. steve: she wound up with big problems. you would think the lesson hollywood would learn is don't do something really stupid but apparently they don't have cable in england because johnny depp yesterday said this: >> i think he needs help. when was the last time an actor assassinated a president? [cheers] i want to clarify i'm not an actor. [laughter] i lie for a living.
4:50 am
however, it's been a while. maybe it's time. steve: clearly talking about abraham lincoln, john wilkes booth and donald trump. >> they are calling for the death of the president of the united states. the media is not outraged. they sore concerned about russia. they are calling for the death of republicans and we still don't hear a word from the media. i think we have reached a point in this political rhetoric that it's now inciting violence. it is time for law enforcement officials to prosecute these people. i don't care if you are actor or celebrity. you still have to abide by the law. it seems like they get a pass. ed: thanks for coming. in. ainsley: lawrence jones have a great weekend. steve: democrats predicting death to this. >> it's a sad day when you cannot depend on the president's word. my advice would be to republicans who do cozy up to him it's like hugging a suicide bomber.

>> well, there are no tapes is different than i did not tape. so all i can say, i repeated the first day we talked about this, if there are tapes you may not destroy them. they become the people's property, the property of the people of the united states. they must be kept sacrosanct. having said -- that's why they are no end of problem about taping. but i want to talk more generally about the president whom i love, we care for. steve: true. >> i think he created his own mess with these tweets of his, talking about obama tapping him in the trump tower. steve: you know is not going to stop tweeting. he feels it's a direct pipeline to the people. >> i don't mind that, steve. i don't mind that he tweets. i like it. i like the spontaneity of it and impetuousness of it. there has to be a measure of substantive truth to keep him is shooting himself in the truth. ainsley: what about james comey if he told the truth?
5:06 am
if he told the truth the president wouldn't have to tweet about that. his reputation is on the line. bigger than what the american people think about him. whether or not he will stay in office. james comey told me i'm not under investigation. he is not saying that out loud publicly. i need my record klein. american public needs to know the truth. maybe you're taped. >> i'm not say i don't understand why he is frustrated and anxious to get his side of the story out there. i'm saying some of the things he said are so ill-conceived and so undisciplined he causes himself no end of problems. talk about obama taping him in the trump tower without proof. yeah, bring on a week's worth of conversations about unmasking and so forth come to a conclusion by waste a week, a week wasted on his agenda. to talk about comey better hope there is no tapes, come on, i don't want to have to talk about that. comey will be part of a junk pile of american history. steve: it was cliffhanger.
5:07 am
now we see what is there there. >> destructive for a week. steve: let's talk about nancy pelosi. president said i'm 5-0. democrats can't get a win. they had four special elections. nancy pelosi knows there are members of her own party out to get her, she said this yesterday, why everybody should love she has the job. >> you want me to sing my praises, that is what you're saying? why should i? i'm a master legislator. i am a strategic, politically-astute leader. i am, my, leadership is recognized by many around the country and that is why i'm able to attract the support that i do. steve: should she go? >> on that, those are a lot better than i do, on that last inn lies the rub. nancy pelosi is proven she is astute rounding up celebrities and collecting money. but as you saw in georgia 6, takes more than celebrities, takes more than money to win
5:08 am
these races. why don't they sit down, in this computer-driven age, why doesn't nancy pelosi, or some other nancy pelosi figure out who did not vote for the democrats? it is this demographic of people. why don't we design a campaign to attract people we lost in the general election? get a message. hone a message. who are you, democrats? i go back to what i've been saying really for three months now. the democratic party in my view has disappeared as a national party. they are a fractured group, almost everybody in it for themselves. they voice their frustration. they wax eloquent. they think that is part of the obsession with trump and what he may or may not have done to quash the flynn investigation. i think he they are a lost party. they need a charismatic central figure. nancy pelosi great to make money. great to bring in barbra streisand. it will not win you elections.
5:09 am
ed: to your point, geraldo, other democrats saying we're not talking about jobs or the middle class. they're not focused. instead the left, johnny depp talked about assassinating president. then this liberal pundit on cnbc. >> sad day when you can not depend on president's words. my advice to republicans cozy up to him, hugging a suicide bomber, blows you up in the process with him. ed: people throw around language. this is ridiculous proportion, comparing the president to suicide bomber? >> first of all for shame. i really do believe that they have to hear from people in authority, just calling them. you know theoretically it's a crime to threaten the president of the united states or the first family. there are obviously, their defense it is jest or hyperbole, forget it, but you have to sting them a little bit, send them a note.
5:10 am
jack, secret service monitored what you said on msnbc this morning. steve: watch it. >> be careful, beware of potential violations of title 18 section 3-c, threatening a president. just a little note. see how long this sloppy language continues. what it does, it adds to the division in the country. i'm of the philosophy, last couple weeks, really try and talk about it, whoever you voted for you only have one president at a time. steve: four years. >> for four years. everybody is complaining about division in the country, great chasm all the rest of it. whoever you voted for close ranks behind the president. on big. steve: michael boom blearing said that. >> michael bloomberg is reasonable person. that is the kind of politics we need. we need to lower the tone. come together as americans. back the president, particularly something going vis-a-vis
5:11 am
north korea or syria or russians. you have to back him. ed: senate republicans come out with health care bill, what does elizabeth warren says, this is blood money. >> that is rich hyperbole on senate side. there is a practical problem with the senate health care bill. if the house bill is considered by the president to be mean, quote, unquote, and the freedom caucus had to be dragged kicking, screaming to support the mean bill, what will happen when they move on to the senate side and try to make it more liberal? is the president going to be able to keep the loyalty of the freedom caucus, those 40 buck a raos? steve: it will be difficult. >> easier to criticize than legislate. ainsley: jillian has headlines for us. buckaroos? haven't heard that in a while. president trump waying in on the senate health care bill, coming
5:12 am
to terms why spue four senators won't sport it. >> very complicated situation, on standpoint you do something for one group. very, very narrow path. i think we're going to get there. jillian: we'll hear more from the president on the health care bill in his exclusive interview with ainsley. that is just a few minutes. stay tuned. we you now know a faulty freezer started london high-rise fire where 79 people died. police blamed the material coating the tower. for spreading flames t was supposed to increase energy efficiency but experts warned about its safety. it is restricted in united states. 600 buildings in the uk are tested for material. 11 have it. everybody involved in the building that went on fire could peace manslaughter charges. north korea says it is the biggest victim in otto warmbier's death.
5:13 am
a lot of people questioning how? north korea said they didn't torture otto that and that the united states is waging a smearing campaign. the 22-year-old died less than a week after being released by the rogue nation. hundreds showed up while he was laid to rest. a rocket that could be part of a program to develop a intercontinental ballistic missile. texas man making a big statement to support the president. kyle courtney bought a billboard slamming abc news over the coverage of presidential election. i grew up with you. we are through. the russians didn't elect donald trump. i did. a lot of people having an opinion on that one, guys. steve: i haven't watched abc since extreme makeover home edition. ainsley: since you got a job at fox 20 years ago. jillian: the bachelor. that is a good show. steve: i have never seen that how bad is the gang problem

steve: this week president trump sat down with several ceos from the drone industry. why? well let's talk to one of them. he is the cofounder and ceo of measure, a leader in the drone industry, joins us from our nation's capitol where they're based. brandon, good morning to you. >> thank you for having me. steve: what did your industry tell the president about the future of drones in the future of this country? >> i told the president drones are not the next big thing, they are the big thing. we're hiring pilots to service fortune 500 customers. we're asking the president and administration to make regulations more flexible so that we can fly more and hire more. steve: i know the president is concerned that overregulation in the drone industry might cause us to fall behind the rest of the world, right? >> that is true. there are other countries that have more incomessable regulations, that make it easier
5:19 am
to fly beyond visual line of sight or fly over people. heartening to hear the president so early in his administration is looking to fix some of these regulations to make it easy you are for measure to operate. steve: sure. we're all familiar, with drone images. your neighbor might have one, take great pictures in the backyard, see one at the beach. going forward, how will drones make life easier in this country? >> well i think they will make people's jobs a lot safer. drones do the dirty, dull, and dangerous. our drones can do it faster and do it safer. for example, one of the most dangerous jobs in america when a person has to climb a cell to youer to do an inspection. my drones and pie pilots do it half the time, do it cheaper make sure no one gets hurt. steve: one of the most important things, you would like to see going forward, if somebody needs to fly a drone, they need a be a pilot.
5:20 am
you're talking about a lot of job. >> we bring our pilots in. how to fly the aircraft. we train them how to do specific applications. keep their pilot currency up. it's a great job for vets and we're hiring. steve: brandon from america sure. thank you very much. >> thank you. steve: interesting stuff. next up a liberals dream, bernie sanders and lizzing with the warren teaming up to pull the party further to the political left. is that the right move? judge janine is fired up and will give us her thoughts next. let's listen to gavin degraw performing, "chariot." ♪

5:28 am
everyone is making a big thing about russia. they want jobs. they want health care. they want to be proud of the country. they don't want to keep hearing about how horrible the president is when there is absolutely no connection. there is no evidence. i was a prosecutor. put your facts where your evidence is before you start claiming that the president is been colluding with russians. ed: now the other thing, when you talk about an agenda judge, that connects with the american people, the president talked a lot in the last campaign cracking down on illegal immigrants and his justice department now is jumping in on this fight for sanctuary cities. >> what the justice department is doing, recognizing that a third of illegal immigrant minors that came from central america in 2014 are in gangs and in prison. texas is now saying, we've got this sb -4 law, we'll mandate that the local authorities assist the federal authorities and respect detainers. department of justice is now
5:29 am
going in supporting that legislation because what they want is the ability to have these detainers lodged for illegal criminal immigrants and not have local law enforcement let them out the side door so they don't have to be arrested or deported. steve: with that statistic, are you saying the flood of unaccompanied minors we saw, turns out a third are gang members? >> not only gang members but ms-13 gang members. ms-13 is the in the business of killing people. it is murder incorporated. ainsley: i saw it on your show. >> they are horrific, absolutely horrific. in 2014 president obama was saying we have to let them in, they're poor, from central america, el salavador, guatemala, these are criminals coming in alone. they are not coming in with their families. they are not babies who needed their diapers changed. they are gang members, yeah i'm with ms-13, i'm latin kings. stop me from coming in?

"the art of the deal." this is where the president talked about on the campaign, as president he could negotiate a better deals for the american people. he will have to show those skills because he is right as well when he told ainsley, so you have these four conservatives like ted cruz saying we don't like this, we want to make changes. you please them, moderates like susan collins say, no, no, i don't like that. this is balancing act. they can't lose more than two votes.
5:36 am
will not have any democrat votes. they have to keep the republicans on board. it's a shifting. ainsley: it is tough because republicans around the country are frustrated, they thought when he won, when the house went republican, senate went republican, this will be a breeze, it will be so easy and we're going to get our way what these republicans are saying. you're seeing how the government really works. the president calls it a swamp, he wants to drain the swamp, you understand why congressman and women they have to vote with their heart, they want to get reelected and want what is best for their constituents. ed: chans for the president and house and for the democrats under well. nancy pelosi under fire. the president weighing in on all that as well. >> i will say this, they are right now obstructionists. all they want to do is try and obstruct. i would think they would do much better as a party if they got along with us. if they called us, let's work on health care together, tax cuts together and tax reform. let's work on infrastructure together. we can do it together.
5:37 am
i honestly would think they would do better at the polls. i think the american public is tired of obstructionists, and i honestly believe that. steve: you know what? i think he is absolutely he right on that. people are sick of it. they want to see something get done. as i reported earlier, i was watching tv during the day yesterday. i saw a young reporter by the name of peter somebody -- ed: good guy. >> he was reporting apparently there are eight and 10 democrat senators who are willing to sit down with republicans to see about fixing this. not necessarily they would vote for them but they would try to fix it. ed: he is a great reporter, but these, the key part he reported, eight or 10 democratic senators who say they want to work with the president. will they? will they? we'll see. ainsley: well, i mean, yeah, we'll have to see about that one. ed: there is a lot of talk working together. we'll see if they follow through. steve: speaking of talk, there was extremely tall man with glasses seen walking into
